Farmers hail 'fish grab' victory.

FARMERS have claimed victory in a dispute over fishing rights. Last year more than 140 notices were served on landowners covering the Ogmore River and its tributaries. These were an attempt by the trustees of the Ogmore Angling Association to register a "profit a prendre" on the river and its tributaries, which would have given them sole and exclusive fishing rights. After the FUW intervened, the Land Registry has now cancelled these applications. It is believed the trustees' solicitor failed to respond to the objections raised by landowners. It is the second time Association trustees has unsuccessfully attempted to register the rights. FUW Glamorgan's Glyn Davies said: "These applications have caused a huge amount of distress and anger to landowners." The FUW is now calling on the Westminster and Welsh Governments to review the profit a prendre system.
